Summary (From the publisher):

This haunting short novel explores the Holocaust from a rarely told perspective. Following a school history assignment, Hannes, a German boy, is disturbed by dreams that transport him back to the 1930s. There, he is persecuted by fellow students and teachers because Hannes is disabled, and like the Jews and "social misfits," the Nazi regime has labeled him "not worth living." Although his mother rushes to protect him, his father seems intimidated-even swayed-by the Nazi propaganda. Meanwhile, the dreams themselves are becoming all too real and Hannes begins to fear: Will he escape this nightmarish world in time to save himself?
